No Jail Time for Chad Johnson for Headbutting Wife
TMZ reported that the former NFL player plead guilty as part of a deal in which he would avoid serving any jail time. The deal between Johnson and Broward County prosecutors requires Johnson to attend “extensive anger management counseling” and he will also be on probation.
On August 11, police arrested Johnson after he got into an argument with his wife. The fight is reported to have started when Lozada found a receipt for some condoms in her husband’s car. The receipt was in the trunk of the car. Lozada reportedly confronted Johnson about the receipt and by the time they got home, the argument had started to get heated.
Once home, Johnson headbutted Lozada and he was arrested shortly after. Johnson was charged with simple battery and domestic violence – a misdemeanor.
In a recent appearance on Showtime’s “Inside the NFL” Johnson shared that losing his wife and his job with the Miami Dolphins has made him more modest.
“When you get a humble Chad Johnson that has lost everything and has to work his way back up, that’s a big deal… Because you’re not getting that same individual, you’re not getting that same fun guy. … I gotta prove a point. That’s the scariest thing in the world to have someone that has that drive.
